Home of Herbs

“There are many important differences between herbal medicine and what we often call ‘orthodox’ or modern medicine. Obviously, herbal medicine is based on natural plant medicine. While orthodox medicine has its roots in herbalism, it has evolved into something quite different. In a high-tech, knowledge based society, we have learnt many valuable things through the advances in modern medical science about how the body works, and how diseases affect us. This knowledge has been useful but perhaps it has also cost us something, if we now reject much of the wisdom which sprung from our deep connection with the natural world and spanned many centuries of observation and empirical practice.”
